Just wondering if anyone has any experience of this please as I wish to post but unsure anyone can help as I need urgent advice. Thank you x
Good, it sounds like the CoP are being helpful. Get that form sent off and then you can start to think about your witness statement. Get a few thoughts down and then you can revise and polish it once you have the copy of her application.I spoke to someone at COP yesterday and they told me to fill in a COP9 to request more time to gather evidence and postpone the hearing and to request a copy of the application so that I know in more detail what she has said. I can then prepare my witness statement and comment accordingly as at the moment I am only assuming and am somewhat in the dark. I was told to send my sister an email advising her of this. I have also requested a telephone hearing so that I don't have to do this awful journey with poor mum in tow to London. I cant believe she would do this to my mum. This is such a nightmare. It's hard enough caring for mum full time without all this upset. I'm not sleeping and continually worrying.
Sorry unlikely that this would qualify for Legal Aid. Civil matters are now very limited. However do check with a solicitor who has a current legal aid contract to be absolutely sure.3.Consider appointing a solicitor yourself. Initially see if you can get one that offers a free initial consultation or get legal advice from Age Concern etc. I wonder whether Legal Aid maybe possible?
